Almost 45% of students who begin first grade in the most impoverished countries in the world do not complete their primary education. Opportunity seeks to decrease this by providing loans for schools.
Enter one of our education finance clients, Daisy Muthoni John, who runs a school of children upto class six in Kitengela-Nairobi, Kenya. She has a passion and love for children and that is why she started a school business. She says that she likes being around children all the time. She spends most of her time managing the school though she has employed ten workers. Nine teachers and one cook. She hopes to have the school as a full primary school and wishing to see the first candidates for her school seat for national examination.
She joined Opportunity to get a 52 week loan to furnish classes for her school to create a better environment for students to learn. She currently makes a profit of Kes 20,000 and hopes to double this amount once the classes are complete as more pupils will be admitted into the school.
She is married and blessed with three children who are also studying in her school. The profits from the school have also helped her cater for needs of his family. Through an Opportunity loan, Daisy has transformed her own life, the life of her family and the lives those within her community.
